Antithesis Original 09 26 2010 - Poem by Lee B. Mack

Original 09 26 2010

The weather of her oceanfront face
Distills to lovers making tidal sounds
Imagoes in darkness later where they touch
The foot set sand sieved waters not sound
We embrace each other in the condominium
Of our souls –taste the sea salt in our kisses
Shore up our shoulders from flat earth seas
Against silicone from embedded limestone
Sphinx face and swim in pyramid debris -the
Jazz festival heats evening’s atmosphere -a
Sister passes laughing soulfully -New Smyrna
Compasses white girls and Atlantis discoveries
As images of mothers of God and observed reality
Haughty ladies stroll to scroll the line of musical cafes
Along Flagler Avenue –remindful of New York’s
Fifty Second Street and Streets of the upper forties
A place to mate if you should first meet -the
Opposite of attention deficit is ego trips like these
Adjunct leisure weather affronts that swell to
Tropical storms of attention demanded…
Verandas fill with competing men –value is loss
On the odds of swimming the Atlantic morning
Beside invisible merchant sea maidens
Coasts clear -every tensor presses toward home.
